Painting the stars....literally!

Our living room needs some love...and by love I mean money. Well, love of the monetary kind is being diverted to other needs at the moment so what's a gal to do?

Paint something, of course! Did you expect anything different from an artist?

While I like these stars, the red has gotten to be a bit much, lately. The leftover paint was raided and my trusty drop cloth came out. About fifteen minutes later, those red stars had become fresh and new again. Um, wish other things were that easy to update!

Why the sudden interest in "freshening up" our living room?

Some of the Hubby's fam will be joining us for Thanksgiving this year. The furniture is looking a little worn (we have kids!) and I've never really been able to pull the whole room together. I'm feeling some renewed inspiration and have decided to go for it in a thrifty kind of way....stay tuned for further projects and results!

Very fun, Anna. I look forward to seeing what you come up with... we can all use a little inspiration:) I am impressed that you are already on the move getting ready for Thanksgiving!

Oooh! I love freshening up. Sadly, I don't have a creative bone in my body, and if I decided to "freshen" up a room, it would need to be taken down to the studs and started over.

I LOVE your idea for "hate to love it" - GAH! Lists!!! That's waaay better than gummy worms!
